Dr. N A M Momenuzzaman said, our heart powers our whole body. It lets us love, laugh and live our life to the full.
That's why it's so important for us to look after our heart.
If we don't, we're putting ourselves at risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), which includes heart disease and stroke. Heart disease and stroke are the world's leading causes of death, claiming 17.3 million lives each year, and by 2030 this is expected to rise to 23 million.
